    Hello everyone,

    I recently moved from New York City to London for my first full time job after I graduated from uni in New York. The experience has been amazing so far: meeting new people, exploring the city, and working with my team. However, I can't help but feel so disconnected at nights. Most of my friends and family are thousands of miles away. I am not in uni anymore, so I can't automatically get a group of friends without trying really hard. The people in my team are three English girls in their late 20s or early 30s, two guys, and a manager. They are nice and intelligent people, but I don't know if I wanna be REALLY close with them as I need to keep it professional. How do I meet more people and find people that I can connect? I would love to meet new people and grab a coffee.
